Filament Spectrum ABS Kevlar
Spectrum ABS Kevlar is a structural composite filament based on ABS with the addition of aramid fibers, commonly known as Kevlar. The demand for properties better than those offered by standard ABS, for durability and for increased tensile strength set in motion actions aimed at combining the very good properties of ABS with aramid fibers.
The applied modifications led to reduced shrinkage, excellent adhesion to work platforms and reduced material density, which means that the printed elements are slightly lighter than their counterparts made with standard ABS. The excellent dimensional stability makes it possible to 3D print objects with accurate dimensions, which is especially important for projects consisting of multiple parts.
- industrial-grade material
- material enriched with aramid fibres
- Vicat softening point: 95°C
- heat deflection temperature (HDT): 88°C
- high rigidity and impact strength
- high mechanical strength
- very strong layer lamination
- automotive industry
- manufacture of parts for end-use
- manufacturing tools

The filament is reeled on the neat, transparent spool. Each spool contains information on the type of material, diameter and recommended printing temperature. The filament is vacuum-packed with a moisture absorber. The whole product is packed in the original, foiled Spectrum Filaments packaging.
VERIFY YOUR SPOOL – the most precise quality control system on the market
Filament for 3D printers is manufactured by the method of free extrusion, which is one of the most difficult processing techniques by extrusion, due to the particularly significant impact of process parameters on product dimensions and material homogenization.
During the production, each 1mm of Spectrum Filament is being continuously measured in 2 axes with ±0.8µm accuracy, which allow obtaining a high-quality final product. To prove this, Spectrum Filaments, as one of the few manufacturers in the world, has introduced the possibility of online presentation, individually for each manufactured spool:
- the course of diameter on the entire length of the spool,
- mean diameter,
- standard deviation.
Precise survey guarantees that Spectrum Filaments products meet rigorous market requirements.
